More Than Excellent
Bird | New York | 08/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had previously purchased a Scott Joplin CD and was disappointed by the dull quality and dispirited playing by the artist. This CD more than makes up for it. The music was beautifully performed and the recording was very clear. Every piece was perfect!"
Scott and I Smile
Donald H. Davis | Seminole, Florida via New York City | 08/01/2007

"Rich, yet not cloying
Aggressive, yet reflective
Bouncy, yet wistfully romantic
Robert Strickland transports the soul of Scott Joplin's Ragtime
Scott and I smile.
"
What the heck???
David A. Silva | Elk Grove, CA United States | 03/19/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Music is great, as is the playing. However, the last song is not Magnetic Rag but rather the same version of Maple Leaf Rag heard earlier on the album.

What is with that?"
